NY State Health Exchange Reports 908,000 Enrolled


The state Health Exchange says 1.26 million New Yorkers have completed applications for insurance while more than 908,000 have enrolled for specific coverage. Only about 422,000 applied for the commercial and nonprofit insurers in the exchange with 487,000 in government-funded Medicaid. More than 70 percent were previously uninsured. Open enrollment ended in March for 2014 coverage at state-approved rates, though it continues through April 15 for those who took steps to apply in advance but didn’t complete their enrollment.
